Space shuttle Atlantis sits on Launch Pad 39A after rollout from the Vehicle Assembly Building. The shuttle sits atop the mobile launcher platform, which is carried by the crawler-transporter beneath. At left is the rotating service structure with the payload changeout room that allows transfer of payloads from a canister into the shuttle's payload bay. Next to the shuttle is the fixed service structure with its 80-foot lightning mast on top. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller March 31, 2009

Space shuttle Discovery arrives at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the back of the Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, or SCA. The two-day return flight from Edwards Air Force Base in California began at 9:20 a.m. EDT Sept. 20. After three fueling stops that included an overnight stay in Louisiana, the piggybacked shuttle had to navigate through a line of showers across Louisiana and around Kennedy.

STS-119 Mission Specialists Richard Arnold (right) and Joseph Acaba, participate in the mission's third spacewalk at the International Space Station. During the six-hour, 27-minute space excursion, Arnold and Acaba helped robotic arm operators relocate the Crew Equipment Translation Aid, or CETA, cart from the Port 1 to Starboard 1 truss segment, installed a new coupler on the CETA cart, lubricated snares on the "B" end of the space station's robotic arm and performed a few "get...

In the grasp of the International Space Station's robotic Canadarm2, the S6 truss segment was photographed by a STS-119 crew member while Discovery was docked with the station. The S6 truss segment was moved from Discovery's cargo bay by the station's Canadarm2, handed off to the shuttle's remote manipulator system (RMS), and then handed back to the station's robotic arm where it will remain in an overnight parked position.

Space shuttle Discovery is purged -- providing cool and humidified air conditioning to the payload bay and other cavities to remove any residual explosive or toxic fumes ÷·_Ä__ while still on the runway. Cooling transfer to ground services occurs at about the same time, allowing onboard cooling to be shut down.
